Queen Elizabeth will not attend the Easter Sunday service at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle this year, per Hello! Traditionally, she accepts flowers from children in the crowd before the service, per the royal website. Now, her public engagements, and seemingly her attendance of the Easter service, are chosen on an ad hoc basis, according to Hello! 

The queen isn’t the only royal who won’t be able to make it. While Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were able to step in for Queen Elizabeth at the Maundy Thursday service, it seems as if they won’t be able to repeat the favor. Sky News reports that they will also miss the church service on Easter morning. According to Express, the most senior royal family members following Prince Charles and Camilla are Prince William and Kate Middleton — so hopefully they’ll be able to attend instead.

Queen Elizabeth may have decided to give the Easter Sunday service a miss in favor of another special day. She celebrates her 96th birthday on April 21 and usually celebrates it with the public in the summer with the Trooping the Colour event. The Telegraph reports that the monarch traditionally celebrates her actual birthday with a quiet family get-together. This year, however, children from the surrounding area will visit Windsor Castle where they will take part in a 21-gun salute at midday on her birthday. Selected kids will have the chance to fire a cannon. What fun!
